Fukushima Radiation Is Not Going Away
We need to face reality that the Fukushima radiation fallout situation is not going away for decades. Although the US should help Japan (independent of the humanity aspects) since the Fukushima radiation fallout will impact the US. For example last year blue fin tuna off the coast of California contained radiation consistent with the Fukushima meltdown.
What is horrifying for all of mankind is that current estimates are that it will take 30 to 40 years and $15 billion (USD) to clean up this nightmare.
If Ben Bernake is going to run his electronic printing press, then why can’t he create $15 Billion from thin air for the Fukushima cleanup instead of creating money to underpin the Wall Street Banksters and thieves who have not turned from their wrongful ways?
Since our government is not helping and the Japanese basically continue to ignore the situation (like an ostrich sticking its head in the sand, waiting for it to be cut off), Americans had better be planning for a nuclear type of emergency, whether from a nuclear power plant meltdown or otherwise. Learn also how to protect yourself from excessive radiation. Get a water filtering system that takes out radioactive particles. The only one I know that will take out radioactive particles is the Aqua Pail. I’ve personally purchased the 1000 gallon Aqua Pail; however, if I was preparing for 2 or more people I would look closely at the 3000 gallon Aqua Pail. You’ll not only need purified water for drinking and cooking but for bathing. Remember radioactive particles can be absorbed through the skin.–No Name Attorney
High cost of cheap energy: Fukushima tragedy 2 years on
By RT News
Two years after the Fukushima disaster, much of the clean-up effort is still ‘theoretical’, survivors go to court for compensation and thousands march against nuclear power, while the government gives up on the phase-out promise.
Experts estimate closing the damaged Fukushima reactors down will cost around US$15 billion and will take about 30 to 40 years.
Two years ago the worst atomic disaster since Chernobyl in 1986 was provoked by an earthquake followed by a tsunami. The natural disaster knocked out cooling equipment at the Fukushima Daiichi plant north of Tokyo, leading to the meltdown of three reactor cores.
The catastrophe claimed 19,000 lives.
“There are still buildings on the plant at Fukushima Daiichi that human beings cannot enter. There’s a lot of work that cannot be done yet, because the radiation levels are too high. So at this point what’s being done is that the grounds are being prepared for the work to come, but a lot of this work is still theoretical: how to remove the fuel, how to lessen the radiation there on the site and how to decommission the plants,” Robert Jacobs, associate professor at the Hiroshima Peace University, told RT.
What hampers the clean-up process even further is groundwater flooding, with hundreds of tonnes of water seeping daily into the damaged reactor buildings.
